Located in Phoenix, Ariz., HASport Performance has been synonymous with innovation in the Honda performance industry since 1998. At HASport, building engine mounts for Hondas isn't a job, it's a full-blown obsession. Along with building engine mounts, HASport offers complete engine swap solutions, which include axles, shift linkage and wiring conversions. Their mission over the years has been to produce the most technologically advanced products that improve performance and safety. There is a reason more magazine project cars use HASport mounts than any other aftermarket manufacturer. It's the same reason the best Honda drag racers choose HASport. HASport has a well-deserved reputation for building the strongest, best-engineered engine mounts in the business. Recently, the guys at HASport gave us a look into how they build their ever-so-famous mounts.

Finally, time for production!
Mounts are CNC machined in-house on one of four HAAS VF-4 Vertical Machining Centers. To increase productivity, automatic pallet changers are incorporated so that non-machining tasks, such as fixture setups and part changeovers, can be performed off-line on one pallet while parts are being machined on the other. This helps HASport keep back orders to a minimum and allows it to offer the best price possible. Custom tooling is also utilized to shorten mill time further.

The mounts are machined from solid 6061-T6 aluminum at tolerances of less than 1/1000th of an inch. Because of heat and warping, welded steel mounts can't hope to duplicate these tolerances. With aluminum's unique combination of strength and light weight, HASport sells a mount that is pound-for-pound much stronger than steel, and looks attractive too. This is why the company offers a lifetime warranty on its engine mounts. Since switching from welded assemblies to machined billet, HASport's warranty rate has been reduced to less than .002 percent.
